To get that invested in hair removal, it has to be more than a job. For Dana Begley, it’s a passion. One that can be traced back to childhood. We’ll let her tell you the story in her own words…
A Passion for Hair Removal
My career in hair removal began many years ago. I was 14 years old, sitting on the bathroom vanity anxiously awaiting for my mother to apply her cure for my “peach fuzz”. My mother had been cutting hair for 22 years and felt she could remove it just as well.
She applied a hot sticky substance to my face and we waited with curiosity as it hardened. Then with absolute confidence she attempted to rip it off. Well it didn’t budge, evidently we let it harden too long and unfortunately had applied it all over my face. In this time of panic I revealed a language to my mother she’d never heard me speak, the more she ripped the more fluent I became. It hurt so bad. I did heal physically from this and we got a little better at the trade of waxing. The more we waxed the more hair I grew.
Over time the hair got much worse and I searched out a permanent solution – Electrolysis. It took fourteen Electrologist to find a good one, since training is not standardized, but I finally got the permanent results I was praying for.
Now it has been almost 30 years, three successful practices and thousands of happy clients since I received the State Medical Board License to practice Electrolysis. I bought my first laser for hair removal in 1994. The results I receive in removing hair permanently and long term are astonishing. The reward I get for doing it is quite personal.
